USB Sierra Wireless 880U Modem Connection to the Internet. Guidance Needed.
I have an Australian ISP “Telstra.Bigpond.com.au” and am trying to get access to Bigpond.com via a USB Sierra Wireless AirCard 880U HSDPA and it looks like the only Linux Distribution that I can find that comes close to recognising the USB Modem is Sabayon 4.1 Linux but I still can’t get the modem to connect even though I have had it working correctly with Windows XP Professional.
When I attempt to edit KPPD as /dev/ttyusb0 and do a modem query I get the details for sierra but for a MC8780 not a Sierra 880U and no other configuration seems to recognise the USB Modem at all.
Can You help by pointing me in the right direction?
What am I doing wrong or missing?
I am running an AMD 3000+(2162Mhz),1Gb Ram, ASUS Motherboard, 160Gb Hard Drive
Any clues would be appreciated. Thanks in anticipation.
